This one bedroom apartment in Paris, France has been renovated in a contemporary style, but with a touch of traditional French chic. It was a project that was completed by the JCPDR Architecture studio. It included some structural changes and gave the place a new aesthetic.
The main change was the addition of a second bedroom and a walk-in closet at the request of the new owner of the apartment. The living rooms are now positioned around the windows and the center contains the traffic areas and thanks to the new design also receives sufficient natural light. Although new partitions have been added to create an extra bedroom, new openings have also been added to allow light to reach every corner of the apartment. The architects also played around with different floor heights to delimit the rooms, for example the small fitted kitchen is placed on a platform. Thanks to the new zone arrangement, the rooms are flooded with light and airy, even the smallest.
White is the main color used throughout the apartment, complemented by natural wood to make it look softer and warmer. Blue is the accent color that is strategically added to some rooms for a bold look and contemporary feel. All furniture in the apartment has been individually designed and perfectly complements the rooms. Many of the large pieces of furniture fit neatly into the walls to create lots of storage space and hide them at the same time.
